A. The clothing in this painting tells about about the class of the person. It is a very fancy, high end clothing item paired with a necklace normally worn by higher class people. Also, the hat worn in this is has beads surrounding the hat.
B. The background in this portrait is a dark wall with no bright or flashing patterns. It is a solid beige color. This is important so the background will not take away any focus from the person in the painting.
C. I believe the artists wants the viewer to feel loyalty toward this woman because of the fanciness she has.
D. This young woman is named Cordela, she is the daughter of the queen and a very sophisticated woman. Cordela is elegant and has great posture and a blank face.
